lyrics

he Great Lemonade Stand Off Of Maple Street
Oh what a lovely day to sell some lemonade
I'm gonna set up shop and sell it on my block
I'll need some sugar, lemons, Ice, a table, and a sign
come try Mikeys lemonade - It only costs a dime, for a limited time

Oh what is this I see? No, no this cannot be
this kid across the street named Crumb is trying to copy me
oh the audacity, oh the humanity
there ain't no way you're selling lemonade on Maple Street

Ya well, I got the perfect spot
more shade then you have got
and all I've gotta say that my stand is better than yours
Well I got a lemon tree in my backyard you see my lemons are infinity
Ya my stand is better than yours
my juice is freshly squeezed
so vitaminly C and that can only mean that my stands better than yours
well maybe in your dreams you sweeten artificially
It tastes like salty sour peanut butter rancid anchovies and rotten moldy cheese

When it comes to a stand off I'm a wizard like Gandolf
mine is the most majestic mystic lemonisticly around
I can sell it out in the cold to a family of Eskimos
In fact the first to get the sale wins the bet and the other has to close

Then old man Bert from around the way stopped at Mike's for some lemonade
he said, "I'm so thirsty I'll drink 10 straight up"
then Mikey realized he did not have cups
Then Crumb said "come on now Mr. Bert
sure love your Hawaiian shirt (why thanks)
how bout some ready made country style lemonade"
I'll take one icy chilled can you break a 20-dollar bill?

uh oh this is strange I don't have any change
You don't have that he don't have this
this is quite ridiculous
you two should form a partnership cuz two heads are better than one
Iit's painful to admit but we would get more done
and we both would benefit cuz two heads are better than one
Hey crumb what do ya say I bet we'd have some fun together selling lemonade
cuz two heads are better than one
working together is a way to get it done
now the lemonade is better there's no comparison
We use a hint of lime grown in the summer sun, our lemonade tastes so sublime cuz two heads are better than one
